I agree man. He should love all his karma for statement like that.
Don't be a thieve. There is not different between stealing a soda at a supermarket and a game on the web.
Actually, there is quite. And the endless comparisons to real. physical products are getting really old.
Instead, think of it as a service, even if you get the game on a DVD. Or perhaps even better, compare it to visiting a theatre, a music concert, or an exhibition. You pay for the experience, not the physical object(s) on display per se. And pirating a game is akin to getting in there without paying for a ticket.
